Slowly headed back down toward my lowest adult weight again this week. I’m not stressing about the scale this week because I took measurements today and I’m down another 6 3/8 inches all around for a total of nearly 125 inches lost. So I guess when people say ‘you are really tiny,’ I really AM tiny. I have a tough time conceptualizing this about myself because I’ve never been small. And now I am. It’s trippy.

So I set my personal goal 50 pounds lower than his.
I am 59 pounds from my goal.
It doesn’t even seem real. Seriously, pinch me, because I must be dreaming!
It does, however, seem possible. Perhaps within the next 7 months, even. That’d be the best Christmas present ever–to hit my goal.
